Grant Thornton UK LLP is proud to welcome a record number of new graduates and school leavers across its January and September intakes this year, with over 450 people joining the firm in 2021.
Grant Thornton has recently informed the c.350 trainees due to start their employment in September that due to the disruption caused to their education by the pandemic their offers are unconditional, meaning they will not be impacted by upcoming exam results.
Perry Burton, Head of People and Culture at Grant Thornton UK LLP, said:
“After another year of interruption to education due to the pandemic, we want to provide reassurance to all our new graduate and school leaver joiners that the disruption will not have a negative impact on their career with Grant Thornton. As part of our commitment to inclusion and diversity we have a flexible approach to academic requirements and know that academic performance in isolation is not an indicator of future success. We spotted the potential in the people that we made employment offers to and so we’re fully committed to doing the right thing and welcoming them to the firm later this year as planned. Our continued investment in wellbeing, development and inclusion is something that is really setting us apart and helping retain our great people, as well as being a powerful message in attracting new talent.”
